When the word, “art,” is mentioned, many people may automatically think of painting, music, drawing, and so on. But, architecture can also be seen as a form of art.

All Ye that Labor...

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
-Matt. 11:28 (KJV)

Rest and relaxation.

We all need it from time to time, whether from doing hard physical labor or from mental exertion and stress.

When you have exercised on that “treadmill of life,” God invites us to come to Him and He promises to give us His rest.

What is this “rest” that God is talking about that He wants to give us?

It is His restorative healing power of whatever we need at that moment, whether physical or mental.

The kind of rest that restores our soul and body.
